Transseptal fibers - crosslinking convolutes: A review

Maheaswari Rajendran, Usha R, Selvam A

Abstract


The transseptal fibers come under a group of supra-alveolar fibers, which constitute the principal fibers of the periodontium. They play a very important role in maintaining the position and orientation of the teeth in the arch. These fibers are embedded firmly in the cementum of adjacent teeth which maintain the mesio - distal contacts of the teeth. There are a continuous renewal and self-regeneration of transseptal fibers, even after destruction. They have a role in midline diastema and relapse of orthodontically treated rotated teeth. This review discusses the transseptal fibers and the bridging role of transseptal fibers in periodontic and orthodontic interventions.
